If you have a negative emotion, trace it back to a negative thought – don’t fall into being a victim of the negative emotion. Take your journal and ask your Higher Self [HS] about the cause of the negative emotion. The cause will always be from within – from your thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, interpretations, negative expectations.
If you are feeling moody, don’t give into your physical and emotional bodies and go around listless and moody all day. Use your mind to discover the negative thought that’s causing the moodiness. Or it may be caused by what you ate or drank the night/day before. This gives you the opportunity to resolve the negative emotion and take charge of your bodies.
One morning I went down to my computer in good form but as I was leaving my office I noticed my mood had changed. I was feeling a bit defeated. So I thought about why this might be and realised that as a result of reading a particular email I had compared myself with another and felt inferior. I realised I had interpreted this email as this person being so successful in what they were doing that it was showing me up. There was likely some jealousy in there too. I journaled and noted how this was a negative ego fear-based reaction – fear of another’s success rather than celebrating their success as something we all gain from. It doesn’t take away from me [only if I’m looking through the false lens of ego and relating everything to myself]. So different to celebrate another’s success and realising this is there for all of us so long as we live in this expectation and belief. The other is sharing how they have done it and helping us to recognise the great gifts which we all have if we choose to see it this way and don’t allow the illusion of ego.
